One man's dream of a little theater in the woods took flight. 

The BHP began as a dream of Dr. Warren M. (Doc) Lee of the University of South Dakota. His goals were to create high-quality entertainment for people in  the Black Hills while providing training and employment opportunities for students and theatre professionals. The BHP has been a part of the College of Fine Arts at USD since 1946.

Each year, auditions are held across the country in search of talented actors, directors, designers, technicians, and interns. Artists reside in dorms in Custer State Park, rehearse on site, and performances are held Tuesday - Sunday throughout the summer in a rustic and sweet 345 seat house.

It is the tradition of generations of friends and families to attend shows at the BHP in Custer State Park.  People often bring picnics to Hab Hall, enjoy the offerings of the BHP Snack Bar, and take time to relax before enjoying a show in this glorious location.
